Real Madrid are never distant from a news headlines where send rumours are concerned—though these past few days have been something of a turnaround given a biggest news is per a potential outgoing deal, not a new signing.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s possible depart from a Santiago Bernabeu wouldn’t be met with concept capitulation by a fanbase, yet it would give Los Blancos a whole store of money to spend.
Whether a No. 7 leaves or not, a rumours of Real signing several of a game’s biggest talents are set to continue, with all positions and all cost tags featuring over a past few weeks related with a pierce to Madrid.
Here we cruise a rumours in turn, ranked by that deals could excite a fans a most—whether Ronaldo stays or not. As a side note, while a awaiting of Fabio Coentrao departing a Santiago Bernabeu competence excite some fans, these are all for intensity incoming deals.
8. Jerome Boateng
Of a 8 names on Los Blancos’ shortlist, Jerome Boateng props them adult from a bottom—but it’s positively not on comment of ability.TF-Images/Getty Images
Despite Real Madrid during times wanting a patchwork defence—all 4 centre-backs were harmed during 2016/17—they still won La Liga and a UEFA Champions League, so clearly it’s not that many of a interruption to them.
There could be some-more depth, there could be some-more reliability, yet overall, a peculiarity of a rest of a group creates adult for what is blank in a behind line.
Boateng is reported by Kicker (h/t Express) to wish assurances from trainer Carlo Ancelotti over his purpose subsequent term, while Zinedine Zidane sees a German as a deputy for a effusive Pepe.
He’s rated during around €40 million and is one of a world’s many rarely valued centre-backs, yet fad factor? Probably not for Real Madrid fans.
7. Paulo Dybala
How do we rate Dybala’s final season? https://t.co/EwGPGddk18
In during No. 7 is a actor who expected would have been a small aloft dual months ago—but Paulo Dybala’s inability to impact a Champions League final against Real Madrid has substantially lowered a courtesy in that he’s hold in some fans’ eyes.
There are reports in Italy that Real wish him as a intensity deputy if Ronaldo departs a scene; Calciomercato (h/t SportsKeeda) advise he’s one of three players Los Blancos will pointer to fill a void, while Football-Italia suggest “multiple reports” in Portugal and Spain contend Dybala is one of dual options.
The Juventus male is part-schemer, part-goalscorer; he’s a honestly top-tier talent, no question, and his set-piece bravery customarily adds to his all-round ability, rather than being a focal point.
But as a Ronaldo replacement, given a stream Real male customarily broken Dybala and his team, he’s substantially not going to lift fad levels by a roof.
The one mitigating cause there is that Barcelona have been linked with Dybala for many of a final dual years, and Madrid fans would conclude snaring one of their rivals’ long-term targets.
6. Theo Hernandez
Depending on that sources we cite to believe, a send from Theo Hernandez to Real Madrid is a finished deal.fotopress/Getty Images
Marca indicate that a dual clubs have come to an agreement already, with Real profitable Atletico more than Theo’s €24 million recover proviso in sequence to keep a assent and not be seen as violating a unaccepted non-aggression agreement a clubs have—or else to finish it entirely.
The idea is that Theo will be presented as a Real Madrid actor early in July, a fill-in for Marcelo during left-back who shone on loan in 2016/17 with Alaves.
He’s a glorious player, technically means yet also strong, assertive and able of personification centrally, too—and he’s entrance from Real’s city rivals.
That, and a fact he gives Madrid peculiarity abyss in a position they’ve needed, creates him a flattering sparkling prospect.
5. Robert Lewandowski
It’s not always a case, yet by and large, a aggressive options tend to be those that excite a fans some-more often: large fees, copiousness of highlights to admire and domicile names via a Continent.
Robert Lewandowski has maybe mislaid some of a radiance of his name being related with Real Madrid, not since of abating peculiarity or advancing age, yet on comment of a gossip being ongoing over such a prolonged period—this will be a third unbroken summer a “transfer” is suggested to be on course.Boris Streubel/Getty Images
Calciomercato (h/t SportsKeeda) contend a Polish centre-forward is one of a 3 names Real wish to soak adult a repairs caused by Ronaldo’s departure, if he does indeed leave.
It’s not tough to see why: Lewi has netted 30 Bundesliga goals in any of his final dual seasons—60 in 65 games—along with 17 Champions League goals in that time.
He’d reinstate Ronaldo in goalscoring terms yet question, a dedicated executive striker to kick teams into submission, and a awaiting of adding such a stone-cold torpedo in front of idea would excite any set of fans.
4. Gianluigi Donnarumma
Ronaldo’s capricious destiny isn’t a customarily one winning headlines of late, after it emerged AC Milan‘s teenage goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma also wants to leave his club.
The Express report that Real Madrid were seen as favourites to land a stopper before Ronaldo’s news broke, yet that has difficult everything. Now a large merry-go-round in a marketplace leaves Juventus as front-runners instead.Marco Luzzani/Getty Images
Real Madrid being who they are, they have to buy a best. The best immature talents, a best in any position, a best during vital tournaments…whatever a accepted application, be it James Rodriguez after a World Cup in 2014 or Donnarumma as a vital dermatitis starlet now, they have to be involved.
As many as upgrading a group is a priority, not vouchsafing a opposition ascent theirs is also a cause to consider.
Donnarumma, a highest-rated immature capsule anywhere in universe football, would be a vital manoeuvre for Madrid (or anyone else who lands him) even with their possess sky-high status.
He would excite a fanbase on repute and probability alone, even yet deliberation his extraordinary ability.
3. Eden Hazard
Another long-running gossip now, yet during slightest it’s one that creates clarity if Ronaldo stays.
With a Portuguese relocating infield to centre-forward in a second half of final season, there’s a mark vacated on a left if Zidane sticks with 4-3-3, that means there’s finally a healthy purpose for Eden Hazard where he doesn’t need to contest with Ronaldo for diversion time.

The word from a English media opening is that with Antonio Conte unhappy, owners Roman Abramovich will lift out all a stops to land Ronaldo and keep his manager in place, even during a responsibility of offloading Hazard.
Hazard during Real Madrid would be an intriguing matchup, a pierce to excite fans and moderate a blow of losing Ronaldo—but even some-more sparkling to cruise a twin personification in tandem.
2. David De Gea
Second place goes to David De Gea, with a Manchester United capsule always ostensible to still be one send window divided from relocating behind to Madrid.Catherine Ivill – AMA/Getty Images
The former Atletico capsule is a long-term No. 1 for a Spanish inhabitant team’s destiny and, until Donnarumma detonate onto a scene, it seemed unavoidable that he’d breeze adult during Real Madrid earlier or later.
Now the Mirror report the Red Devils finally being prepared to let De Gea go…but again, customarily if it involves Ronaldo in return.
Given that a understanding would also embody around £175 million in cash in addition to a goalkeeper, customarily rated during somewhere from £60-80 million, it would be a outrageous understanding for Madrid to cruise to trap a long-term target.
Keylor Navas is dignified by a Madrid fans, yet De Gea is a one plenty of them want and would stitch adult a goalkeeper purpose for adult to a subsequent decade. They wish it, and (Donnarumma pending) it still feels as yet they competence eventually get it, and that’s value removing vehement about.
1. Kylian Mbappe
Top of a rankings is maybe a many sought-after youngster in universe football right now—along with Donnarumma, maybe.
Whoever gets Mbappe lands everything: blurb interest, mainstay inches, large sell sales—oh, and a entirely sparkling immature brazen into a mix.

It’s unfit not to be convinced by Mbappe’s relentless movement, his intelligent brazen runs and ability to take on players down a channels. He’s a goalscorer, too, and those tallies are customarily going to soar.
Mbappe has been related with half of Europe—Arsenal, Liverpool, PSG, Manchester United, copiousness some-more besides—but Marca report he customarily wants Real Madrid for his send destination. “Real Madrid or no-one,” is a quote attributed to a forward, yet it competence not be this summer.
Whenever he moves on, there’s no doubt he’ll be hugely scrutinised, watched during each spin and assessed with each shot—and all that is since of his €100 million gratefulness and a fact he’s one of a many sparkling send targets anywhere in a world.
